As seen on TV – and elsewhere

About a week ago, we put up a post on our webpage about one of our books getting returned after 90 years. We thought it would be an interesting and amusing way to explain a little about what happens when books are overdue. Little did we know. That afternoon, Jeff Edwards from the Larchmont Patch came and talked to us about the book and took a few pictures. The next morning, this article appeared. We were thrilled the Patch had noticed our post. Little did we know.

Then, on Friday, it exploded. Interview requests started pouring in: Fox News, Inside Edition, Fox5, Eyewitness News and the Journal News all wanted to speak to someone about the book. We were stunned, but we persevered. By Monday, ABC’s World News Tonight and the Washington Post had gotten into the act.

We thought it would be fun to put together links to some of the interviews and stories here:

These are just a few. We know there are more because of things like the man who came to the Library and asked to see the book, “My cousin in Tempe told me about it,” or the woman in New Jersey who was going to buy a book to send to a relative in Larchmont. “Then I saw the story about the book and realized he could maybe get it at the Library. Do you have this book?”

If you feel like holding a little history in your hand, stop by the Information Desk. We’ve got it on display.
